    Notes:
    * Syria Conflict
    The Syrian conflict has to date not had any travel impact on Jordan. However DAYS 1/2/3 maybe modified in order or alternate destinations maybe selected. This would be in response to any change in the situation in Syria. The itinerary south of Amman (Petra, Wadi Rum and Aqaba) will not be impacted.

    * India Extension
    It is possible to fly a triangular route US/EU-JORDAN-INDIA-US/EU at a cost that would be much less than making two separate trips. Anyone that has business or family in India that would like to visit India for a few days after Jordan should contact us on how to get the best fares on these flights.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
